Given the very sad passing of Frankie Knuckles this week we thought it only fitting to feature a track from the godfather of house. It is generally believed that the term house music comes from the type of music Frankie played at the legendary Warehouse club in Chicago. This track from Frankie was released in 1987 on Trax records and features the vocals of Jamie Principle. Interestingly, although the song is credited to Frankie, it was originally released as a different version by Jamie Principle in 1986. Frankie also released numerous other house classics including The Whistle Song and Tears feat Satoshie Tomiie.
If you haven’t seen it, there’s a great RBMA interview worth checking out. And if you want to check out a mix of Frankie’s, the latest XLR8R DJ podcast, released just days before Frankie’s death, is a set from the man himself.
